Volunteer Southern Africa offers people the opportunity to explore Southern Africa as more than a tourist – our volunteers become immersed in the people, animals, and beautiful lifestyle. Our program provides an environmentally responsible, and incredibly affordable working holiday.
Now more than ever, it’s Africa’s time to rise. Volunteering while traveling enables you to thoroughly experience the majesty of the tip of Africa. You are part of rehabilitating the incredibly precious environment while enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime holiday filled with adventure. You are getting the best of Africa.
Volunteering with Volunteer Southern Africa is the chance to experience the vibrant energy of southern Africa in its natural environment while giving back in the most exciting way possible.
With more than a decade of experience in bringing global tourists to Africa, the dedicated team at Volunteer Southern Africa has all of your requirements covered and is ready and equipped to answer all of your questions. We understand the inherent concerns that accompany hopping on an airplane to Africa, so we’ve carefully designed our programs to ensure our volunteers are looked after, happy, and safe.
A credible organization, Volunteer Southern Africa created the infrastructure of our projects to make volunteers like you feel secure from the moment you book the trip of a lifetime. For safety assurance, we provide:
- Transfer to and from the relevant airport.
- On-site volunteer coordinators who happily guide our volunteers.
- An orientation session before diving into the wonderful work of the programs.
- Provision of clean, safe accommodation and daily meals.
- On-the-job training.

- Please review the individual program guidelines for specific details.
Volunteer Southern Africa is absolutely committed to responsible travel and environmentally responsible holidays. We strongly feel that a limited travel budget should not have to hold you back from seeing and experiencing the wonders of Africa.
If your urge to preserve is as strong as your desire to discover, join us. We will gladly facilitate this aspiration for you. In doing so, we’ll all be in the business of changing lives for the better. For more detailed information on each project, please feel free to contact us.

A few common Health & Safety questions:
Canned lion hunting policy
Volunteer Southern Africa sees the care of all animals paramount. Therefore, we have not, do not, and will not ever, under any circumstances, support any facility that sells lions to the canned hunting industry, whether directly or indirectly. We will gladly investigate any and all claims of animal abuse or accusations that facilities we support are involved in. If it were to be discovered that one of our project locations is contributing in any sort of way to the atrociousness that is canned lion hunting, we would remove our company and our programs from the respective location effective immediately. Should you have any current proof that details any of our facilities working with, for, or in cooperation with the canned lion hunting industry, please reach out to us, as we would like to hear from you and subsequently take appropriate action.
Volunteer Southern Africa will continue to support the zero tolerance against animal abuse initiative and we vow to our volunteers that we will never associate them, as well as ourselves, with canned lion hunting.
